Government of Quebec
End of the vaccine passport
The Quebec government announced the end of the vaccine passport on Tuesday at a press conference. The vaccine passport is therefore no longer required in large stores of more than 1500 square meters, nor at the SAQ, nor at the SQDC, and this, since today.
Furthermore, the passport will no longer be necessary to attend places of worship or to attend funerals as of February 21.
Finally, the obligation of the vaccination passport will be lifted everywhere in Quebec from March 14, in particular in bars, restaurants, cinemas, but also in CHSLDs and residences for the elderly (RPA ).
